In the summer of 2014, Gwinnett County Public Library partnered with Buffy Hamilton of Norcross High School to host their inaugural MakerCamp: a 4-day program that allowed high school-age students the opportunity to explore 3D design and 3D printing through innovative and accessible tools and resources. Join Michael Casey and Christopher Baker as they discuss MakerCamp’s development and delivery, and explore the learning opportunities the program offered both students and staff.

About the Carterette Series Webinars
The Carterette Series Webinars was named to honor one of our founding members, Pat Carterette.
In June of 2010, members of the Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service launched this bi-monthly educational webinar series. The series highlights trends, innovation, and best practices in libraries. The free sessions are open to interested parties from all geographic (and astral) locations. Topics are chosen to be of interest to students and employees from all library types, and each session is approved for one Georgia Continuing Education (CE) contact hour.
